3.0 out of 5 stars "The Cat Star Chronicles" book 3, 28 Feb. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rogue (Cat Star Chronicles) (Mass Market Paperback)
Kyra Aramis has led an uneventful life since graduating with a music degree. Never previously having left the country, the timid Kyra is drawn to apply for a job on the distant planet of Darconia and finds herself travelling there to teach a reptilian princess the piano. On arrival, Queen Scalia quickly introduces Kyra to her two favourite pet slaves, beautiful humanoid but cat like naked men. These brothers, Tychar and Trag are Zetithians; a race hunted almost to extinction due to their ability to so arouse a female.

Both men are beyond temptation, yet it is Tychar that Kyra is most drawn to and when Scalia announces he is her personal attendant and will see to any need she may have, Kyra finds herself utterly tempted by such an offer. Tychar in turn is most anxious to please Kyra in any way; having dreamed of this woman he will love in a vision many years ago; a woman who will change his life forever.

With a political coup, an assassination and a desperate escape to survive the upheaval on Darconia, there is plenty of action intermingled with the increasingly passionate encounters between Kyra and Tychar; and on one occasion a steamy menage including Trag. That said, I think this book would have worked better written in the third person and offering far more insight on the opinions, perceptions and motivations of those characters who also have significant roles in "Rogue"; namely Tychar, Trag, the Darconian royal family and a few of their personal attendants. Although well written, the story line becomes increasingly blinkered by only including Kyra's point of view, which revolves heavily around her growing obsession with Tychar's body and his bedroom skills. Some of the sexual language made me (inappropriately) smile and at times this terminology reduced the impact of some intense moments. I would have given this book 3.5 stars rather than the average 3; however an additional half star option is unavailable.
